Throwback Thursday – Robyn and John’s Backyard Wedding

For #tbt we wanted to showcase Robyn and John’s backyard wedding from 2011 and say Happy Anniversary!

Their wedding featured spray roses, ranunculus and soft greens – and the color palette was PINK!

“Think Anthropologie” said Robyn, and we were in love. They ate chocolate dipped strawberries in the harbor after their ceremony and laughed the whole day!

 The reception took place in Robyn’s parents backyard. It was mostly a homemade affair; Robyn made felt flower boutonnieres for John and the TEN groomsmen and strung together paper dot streamers for the ring exchange.


Backyard Wedding

She chose hobnail glasses and mason jars for the centerpieces and asked for cake toppers for their “bake sale” inspired dessert table.

Robyn and John, we hope you are just as happy today as you were three years ago. We were so honored to make your wedding day gorgeous.

Happy Anniversary!
